Black Dragon Pool

Heilongtan is located in the west end of the scenic spot, surrounded by mountains on all sides, with clear water and quiet scenery. There are still song clear springs merging into the lake. In summer, it's very hot outside, but it's refreshing and pleasant inside.

There are poem clouds: a small abyss under the fallen rocks, the ancient streams gather into pools. Static waves are clear to the bottom and enjoy themselves by sitting on the shore.

Water curtain Gallery

There is a long corridor at the bottom of the dam of the scenic area reservoir. The corridor is winding and quiet, warm in winter and cool in summer. Especially in the rainy summer, the water level of Haoming Lake rises, water gushes from the five holes of the dam and falls into the pool below. The difference between the height and the height of the pool is nearly 20 meters, forming a spectacular artificial waterfall, and the corridor behind the waterfall becomes a longing'water curtain corridor'.
